    Macquarie Boys Technology High - Daily Telegraph | Lost Collective

    Daily Telegraph Macquarie Boys Technology High

    The Daily Telegraph featured pictures from the Lost Collective Macquarie Boys Technology High Gallery.

    This school is so far beyond saving. There were a number of people calling for the school to be restored when this gallery went live.

    I think the photos probably speak for themselves in the sense that the school is just too far gone to be reused and it would seem the land could be better used for other purposes.

    In 2016, the school hall suffered an arson attack and was completely destroyed.

    I can't help but wonder why public land, such as Macquarie Boys Technology High that is going to waste goes through such extensive periods of total inaction, allowing the buildings to fall into a state of disrepair.

    It's a different story for heritage listed or historically significant buildings, but Macquarie Boys Technology High is neither.

    I wouldn't be too surprised if the state of the school descends even further over the course of another decade.

    There was quite a large number of former students who saw the original collection of pictures when they were published to the Lost Collective Facebook page.

    Can you imagine seeing the school where you spent the majority of your childhood in a state like this?

    Amid overgrown weeds and deserted hallways, the trashed and empty classrooms of Macquarie Technology High School sit silently gathering dust in the darkness.

    Since dwindling enrollments forced the state government to close the Western Sydney school in 2008, the building and its grounds on James Ruse Dr, have been abandoned to vandals and vagrants.

    In 2007, the site was speculated to be worth more than $10 million.

    Today, in crumbling labs where students once learned about science and maths, broken glass litters the floor and rusted lab equipment lies next to piles of discarded clipboards.
